Bought in Viherpaja for 15.90€ early spring 2016. It already had flowers on it when brought it home. When choosing the plant I used nylon gloves to inspect the roots underneath. In this one I noticed that the trunk goes strongly to one side, obviously as a result of badly performed grafting.

Though the trunk “bend” is the result of grafting I don’t mind it, I like it anyway 🙂

When spring came into our areas I repotted it and pruned heavily as the growth was way too leggy and long. The plant species seems to be difficult to force ramify but heavy pruning is supposed to generate more flowers and ramification. So here we go 🙂
